Program for PC that writes waypoints to GPX?

I bought a boat that has a Lowrance ELite Ti 9 on it. I want to add waypoints for favorite fishing locations. Do you know of a program for my PC that will let me type in the info on the pc and build a file to be transferred to the gps unit? Thanks!

gps babel can convert your google kmz or kml files to gpx.

Thanks for the suggestion. I don't have the waypoints in a file right now, just copies from a magazine article. I thought it would be easier to type them in on my pc than sitting in the boat in my yard and typing them into the gps directly.

type them in google earth. Then save as a KML in google. Then use gps babel to convert to gpx file.

Just make sure to use the correct lat/long settings that your coordinates are in.
